Spouscontentdelivery.info redirect removal instructions
What is spouscontentdelivery.info?
spouscontentdelivery.info is a rogue website that should be avoided, since it triggers redirects to other dubious sites or displays dubious content. There are many websites of this type, most of which have similar behavior. Some examples include onlinepushnotification.com, parliery.info, and pituitosus.com. In most cases, people visit these sites due to potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on their systems that cause these redirects. Additionally, PUAs deliver intrusive advertisements and collect user-system information relating to browsing activity.
When installed, PUAs open untrustworthy websites (in this case, spouscontentdelivery.info using infiltrated browsers) in new browser windows or tabs. The spouscontentdelivery.info site then causes additional (about 2-3) redirects to other malicious websites or simply displays dubious content - this depends on the visitor's location. PUAs also display intrusive advertisements - they feed users with banners, surveys, pop-ups, coupons, and other ads. PUAs use tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, the ads conceal underlying content of visited websites. They are annoying and, when clicked, usually open untrustworthy, malicious websites. They are also designed to run scripts that download and install other potentially unwanted apps. PUAs also gather user-information such as search queries, IP addresses, URLs of visited websites, geo-locations, and so on. Some of the information might also include personal, sensitive details. PUA developers share the details with third parties who misuse private data to generate revenue. It is also shared with cyber criminals. Thus, installed data tracking apps can lead to problems with privacy, browsing safety, and identity theft. We strongly recommended that you avoid installing and using any PUAs.
|Threat Type||Adware, Unwanted ads, Pop-up Virus|
|Symptoms||Seeing advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing. Intrusive pop-up ads. Decreased Internet browsing speed.|

To eliminate spouscontentdelivery.info pop-up our malware researchers recommend scanning your computer with Spyhunter.
Most of these apps are promoted as legitimate and apparently deliver 'useful' features/tools, however, they are simply used to generate revenue for the developers, deliver no real value for regular users, and cause various problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some PUAs are promoted through various websites on which people can download them, however, in most cases, they download and install them unintentionally. This usually happens when clicked deceptive ads run scripts designed to download/install PUAs or when developers "bundle" unwanted apps into the software/installation set-ups. Bundling is a deceptive marketing method used to trick people into installing PUAs with other chosen software. Developers hide additionally-included (bundled) apps in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings/options of software download or installation set-ups. Information regarding the inclusion of PUAs is not properly disclosed. Installation of these unwanted apps can be avoided by checking all settings and opting out of unwanted options.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Download software using official sources (websites) and direct links. Do not use tools such as torrent clients, eMule and other Peer-to-Peer networks, unofficial websites, third party downloaders (and installers), and other similar channels. All installations (and downloads) should be handled carefully. Do not finish these installations without checking all included settings and deselecting offers to install/download additional, unwanted software. Deceptive ads may seem legitimate, however, they are displayed on untrustworthy, unofficial websites. When clicked, they open deceptive, potentially malicious websites relating to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and so on. If these redirects occur randomly (or dubious ads appear), potentially unwanted apps might be installed on your web browser or computer. Check the list of installed browser extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons, and remove all unwanted, suspicious apps immediately. Also check the list of installed programs on your operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
